Talking 'bout the real thing, baby....
If we stop to acknowledge and respect
the amount and level of power
we actually have over our day,
things would go so much more smoothely!
In every moment, if we are Cautious and Aware,
we can transform Reality with either a smile
or a frown....our Thoughts and Words and Actions
are all so carefully tied to our impact on the world,
and, of course, what it gives back to us!
We can determine a new Friend or Foe by
letting transgressions slide or becoming menacing
and defiant. Conflict--short of self preservation--
is a Choice. Resentment is a Choice. And one
decision colors the rest of the world we see.
Do we reach into another person's day for good
or for ill, by either acknowledging them with a
nod and a kind word, or looking the other way
and ignoring them?
Regret, resentment, and rage...
or contentment, calm, and compassion?
Do we perform for others, clamoring for affection
and attention, or do we remain True to Spirit
Are we engaged in old patterns and habits,
or are we open to new paths and outcomes?
Repitition or exploration?
Is it in our heart to curse others (and our day)
with contempt, gossip, and assumption,
or do we Bless with kindness, courtesy,
support, and a tongue in reserve?
It is completely within us to decide each of
these, and by choosing, so determine the quality
of our day.....and that of those around us.
